We celebrated Thanksgiving at Godson's school today with a turkey feast and all the timings for his classroom, teachers, and assorted others who followed their noises to Room 51. It was the happiest place on earth for about 3 food-filled hours today.
Students and staff pitched in and brought their favorite holiday foods that included everything from turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes to salads, corn and carrot souffle.
Before several homemade desserts were served, each student read their homework assignment telling things they are most thankful for this year. The kids range from age 10 to 14 and are mostly boys. Here are some of their responses--
--This year I am definitely most thankful for being able to beat my brother on the Wii and for my Dad for buying the game for us.
--I am thankful for my mother who birthed me, my father who clotheses [sic] me, my sister for not yelling at me so much and my little brother who's finally potty trained.
--I'm thankful that this Thanksgiving it's not my turn to help with the dishes.
--This is the time of year when I give thanks for black olives that I put on my finger tips and Cool Whip. Lots and lots of Cool Whip.
--I am thankful for my family, friends and everybody I ever met in my life. And I'm thankful for school vacation. (Due to budget cuts, Los Angeles public schools now get the entire week of Thanksgiving off for vacation.)
--I'm thankful for Thanksgiving because it has the best food of any holiday and my whole family comes from all over and we all get to eat together all day long.
--I am thankful for this classroom celebration so I don't have to go to history class.
As for me, I'm thankful that I don't have to cook the big turkey dinner this year. We'll be dining at our dear friend's house this year.
What are you thankful for this time of the year?
